Thanks for the tip.  Im not sure of the API i should use:

 GLX-- (which is the OpenGL to X interface)
 GtkGL-- (which is a wrapper around the GLX functions.)
 GtkGLArea-- which I think is a Gtk widget of some type that
      let's you paint on the GtkGLArea widget using OpenGL

In windows i guess i use:

I'm in the unhappy situation of having TOO many toys to play with in
my toy box. ;-)

Additionally im not sure about component making in Lazarus, as
i have not tried it yet. Is it really as easy as creating decedent of
TWinControl? Cool.  Im still a little fuzzy about TGtkObject stuff,
but im sure it will become clearer as i play with it more.
